We employ advanced genomic techniques, genome editing methods, and bioinformatic analyses to study the mechanisms of long-range gene regulation and the role of 3D chromatin architecture in cellular development and function.

I am developing new CRIPSR/Cas9-based protocols for rapid and efficient editing of multiple cell types and applying these methods to probe the mechanisms of DNA looping and gene regulation during cellular differentiation.

I'm a second year GMB student and member of the BCB Certificate Program. I study changes in chromatin looping, gene expression, histone modifications and protein binding as resting macrophages activate into a pro-inflammatory state, in the hopes of understanding how these events work together on a genome-wide level to change cell states.
I am a sophomore majoring in Biology. I use CRISPR-based genome editing technology to study gene regulation in human macrophages.
BBSP Rotation Student
I am a first year BBSP student studying transcription factor binding events that regulate macrophage development and function.
I am a Junior majoring in computer science. I am developing new software for analysis and visualization of DNA sequencing data.
